Re: Air Tanker Question
Funny that is what us pilots and aircraft mechanics have told the US LMA's since the '47, DC10, and even the ideas of using A10's was were discussed 16-17 yrs ago.
The idea of using Jeeeet aircraft and $7.00 USD for JetA is now upon us and we as mechanics and pilots KNOW the associated training costs and MX checks such as A throuhg D checks and Progressive MX is and hopefully going to be included in the up n coming 5X5 or 10 yr contracts. Again this is NOTHING new to us....it will be a shocker as was the '47 and '10 at their hourly rates.
What?? The LMA's thought aviation was free?? Wait til you see a repair bill for a replacement engine, vertical stabilizer, flaps. horiz stab....you think Type 1 thru 6 engines prices were bad....STANDBY!!!
